Are You Neglecting these 4 Skills in High School English / Moore English
In the past, I've neglected certain parts of ELA. Some skills I blew off. Others made me uncomfortable. And others I expected students to have before they arrived in my classroom. None of these are good reasons to write off academic skills. More than anything, these attitudes put my students at a disadvantage. Similarly, these attitudes also prevented me from making professional growth. And I'm hope that by sharing my mistakes, others can learn what NOT to overlook or neglect in ELA instruction

How to Use Stations for Literary Analysis
Literary analysis writing is one of the cornerstones of language arts. To help students prepare for literary analysis, I use this set of stations. These stations feature story elements, summarizing, silent discussion, and writing conferences. With stations, students have a chance to work collaboratively, even in a distance learning or blended learning situation. Stations also allow students to build community and learn from one another. Using stations also brings movement to the classroom

How to Incorporate Movement in High School Language Arts
Incorporating movement is an important part of developing engaging instruction. With meaningful, deliberate, and structured movement, students can benefit from spatial recall, collaboration, and development of their speaking and listening skills. Some of my favorite opportunities for meaningful motion in the classroom are essential to student engagement, to pairing movement with content, and to developing classroom community. With these strategies, teachers will have creative, fun lessons!
